I'm using mail merge in Word, with the data coming from Excel.

The formula for the data in Excel is number/6 and I limit it to display just one decimal number, e.g. 91.7.

But in Word, it displays as 91.6666666666.

I would like it to show 91.7 in Word as well.

For example if the source value is in A1 you need to use this formula for the mail merge data:

  • @cliffe I don't know how that's possible. It should have worked. However, try =TEXT(A1/6,"0.0") instead.
